Brink Preview

Brink is a new First person shooter from Splash Damage.

In Brink, there are two sides, “Resistance” and “Security”, fight in the Utopian city known as The Ark, a floating city surrounded by the waters of a flooded Earth. The Ark was designed as a prototype of a perfect city, with renewable resources and no pollution, large enough to support 5,000 residents. However, due to many refugees entering the city from other parts of the world, its population has grown to 50,000, meaning there are not enough resources to go around – resulting in the city being on the brink  a civil war.

It’s release has not been confirmed as yet. But will be released in the first quarter of next year

You have a COMPLETELY customizable characters down to what your face looks like.

There are four main classes

  • Soldier – can resupply teammates with ammo and carry high explosives to destroy key targets.
  • Engineer – can buff their teammates’ weapons and can also place turrets at strategic locations.
  • Medic – primarily heals downed teammates, though they also buff their allies’ health.
  • Operative – Can hack objectives and perform acts of sabotage. They can also interrogate downed opponents to provide intel on enemy locations or disguise themselves and operate as one of the enemy.

Brink also features Splash Damage’s SMART (“Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain”) System. It allows players to manoeuvre around complex environments without equally complex input by analyzing their position and judging what they are trying to do. The movement style is that of parkour, similar to that as seen in the Mirror’s Edge and Assassin’s Creed games.
